What can you say about people commit murders because of love?

Of course, murder is a horrible crime! However there are some phrases that I hear or read in the dailies like "senseless killings", "senseless death", senseless murder" which implies that there are killings or murders that are "sensible". So, what can you consider as killings or murders that make sense? How about in the name of love, do you condemn or would you rather pity people who committed murder for that reason?

it is still a murder. and i think it is not right to say that they did it, in the name of love. call it revenge, selfishness, anger, bitterness! but if you killed someone because you are just protecting or defending your partner from visible danger, and ready to give your own life, then that's love...

Yup, you're right. Killing for defense can be an admissible reason. But that's not murder.

You ahve to condem them. You cant let people get away with commitng murder. There might be an element of pity in your decision but basically you cant let people get away with killing others just because they have a personal stake in it. I dont know why you would need to kill someone.

The feeling of pity is totally gone the time murder is committed in the name of love. I would rather pity the victim rather than the aggrieved murderer. Murder is not a way of the sensible.
